To The Editor,

After reading the article entitled 'DLE - CLINICAL VARIANT' by Lalit Mohan et al (Ind J Dermatol Venereal Leprol, 1990; 56:467) I feel that the case described could be that of generalised discoid LE. Some of the lesions in the figure resemble those of verrucous (Hypertrophic) variant of DLE also.

When the cutaneous lesions of LE occur both above and below the neck the term generalized discoid LE is used and these patients are at a risk to develop systemic in­volvement[1] Hypertrophic DLE is a variant of chronic cutaneous LE characterized by verrucous, hyperkeratotic lesions resembling keratoacanthoma or lichen planus.[2] In sub­acute cutaneous LE the follicles are not in­volved and there is no scarring[3]
